“Expansion of the Blazeman ALS Tissue Collection.”

Importance of ALS Tissue for Research

The University of Maryland Brain and Tissue Bank acknowledges the recent expansion of the Blazeman ALS Tissue Collection and how this donation allows them to directly market the availability of ALS Tissue to researchers. This current fiscal year, ALS is ranked number one in terms of the number of samples they have shared from neurologic and developmental disease tissue. Future opportunities include working closely with the BMF to identify specific ALS investigators with whom they might establish a working relationship to expedite their research.

On May 2, 2005, twenty-year Multi-Sport veteran Jon Blais a.k.a. "Blazeman" at age 33 was diagnosed with the fatal motor neuron disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Blazeman dubbed himself the "ALS Warrior Poet" and brought his battle to the big island of Hawaii on October 15th that year, where he became the first person with ALS to complete the Ironman World Championships. It was his last race. In 2006, a number of athletes, inspired by Jon's 2005 efforts, rolled across the finish line in Hawaii in honor of Jon and his battle against ALS. In 2007, the Blazeman Foundation for ALS expanded Team Blazeman, comprised of "Blazeman Warriors" who have committed to raising awareness and funding a search for a cure for ALS..."So  Others May Live."            

FREEDOM!!!!! A comment on Jon's the "Last Full Measure"...BF-ALS... the very first "motto" seen on the main page of the Foundation (web-site) @ www.waronals.org lower right side states..."Decision must be instant...Commitment must be total", -blazeman. A moral imperative...he followed it to his last breath...and with death, his last "Full Measure", was to donate his "organs"...so researchers could learn and discover..."so others may live"..."Commitment was Total"...bdad... http://www.triathloninspires.com/jblaisstory.html.
